On behalf of Teachers College, Columbia University and the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund, we warmly welcome you to “Bringing Policy to the Table: New Food Strategies for a Healthier Society.”

We have high hopes that the conversations taking place at TC today will spark new ideas, partnerships, and public measures that translate into healthier eating options, choices, and habits in high-need neighborhoods throughout New York City in the years to come.

This conference represents a flourishing partnership between the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund and Teachers College. The Illumination Fund strives to improve access and opportunity for all New Yorkers, supporting innovative approaches to the arts, civic service, education, and healthy food that improve communities and contribute to a more vibrant quality of life. Teachers College, now celebrating its 125th anniversary as the birthplace of nutrition education and the nation’s oldest and largest professional school of education, is a national leader in cutting-edge research, policy evaluation and training for education, health and nutrition professionals.

We wish to thank our conference moderator Dr. Madelyn Fernstrom and all of our distinguished panelists for contributing their time, talents, and expertise toward ensuring a productive discussion, which, we are confident, will fortify elected officials, policy makers, and community leaders in their resolve to make both information about healthy eating and, of course, healthy food, accessible to all.
